The Rattlers are no longer the “almost guys.”

For the first time since 2005, San Marcos is undefeated after its first two contests of the season. Eight years ago the Rattlers beat San Antonio-Madison and Round Rock-Stony Point. This year they dropped Dripping Springs and now Victoria East.

San Marcos — under head coach Mark Soto — doubled its win total from all of 2012 after a 38-12 victory Thursday night over the Victoria East Titans.
